A qualification that is popular due to Universities and most employers requiring a GCSE in maths at grade C or level 4 or a GCSE equivalent qualification is the functional skills maths level 2. This qualification is accepted by most establishments since it is a GCSE equivalent.
We believe that revising over the exam topics and then sitting the functional skills maths level 2 past papers after you have finished your revision, is the best way to prepare for your exam. Once you have completed your revision and the past papers and you feel ready to sit the exam, then you should book the maths course. We recommend you get stuck into the maths past papers and look at the functional skills courses that people take. There are different revision resources for level 2 maths for free such as videos and practice papers.
There are different booking options such as sitting in an exam center or sitting the exam online. We think that the best option is a functional skills maths level 2 online exam because you don’t have to travel anywhere. By taking your exam online, you will be connected to an Ofqual approved professional exam invigilator. You must make sure that the exam provider is Ofqual regulated before you book in with them. At QTS Literacy Tutors, we recommend MME as the exam provider for the online functional skills maths exam since they are an Ofqual regulated service.
